The Secrets of French Parents

5 of 9


The French are known for their love of good food, but a key to their enjoyment is their restraint. Young babies are served whatever the family is eating—pureed, such as pureed roasted vegetables, braised leeks, or even artichokes. French children eat three meals a day and only one snack—no munching all day long. Lunch and dinner may take two hours or more, with an emphasis on savoring each flavor and texture.
